Dropped/Suspended Ceiling Tiles(3 posts)
I just had my first treatment by a PCO on Friday (there were no fecal stains, blood spots, etc. but I have the frozen bed bug and cluster bites as evidence). He sprayed all the baseboards and the metal bed frame.
I am now suddenly concerned that my dropped ceiling in my bedroom could harbor the bugs. I'm not sure what to do and there's no way I'm poking around in those ceiling tiles myself. Anyone else have this issue?
Answering my own question, in case someone else has the same issue. Just spoke to the PCO and he said that it's highly unlikely that there would be bed bugs in my dropped ceiling unless I have a major infestation (i.e. "you're seeing 20-30 bed bugs during the day"). So I guess I'll have to trust him on this one.
I guess that aligns with the concept that unless they're disturbed or a major infestation, the bed bugs prefer to be closer to the host. Still, if suspect or infested, ceiling panels can probably be packtit-ed.
